After owning and managing a small business for all his adult life, Willard is looking forward to the next phase of life. He has participated in several short term mission trips to Cuba, Ecuador and Austria and is looking forward to continuing that ministry. Serving in the local church context has always been an important expression of his faith and gratitude. Spending time with his wife Marilyn, children and grandchildren has been a source of ongoing joy and happiness. Also having meaningful conversations with people, scripture mediation, golfing, cycling, times of solitude and prayer provide help and encouragement along the way.
